Basile, Giambattista [trans. Richard Burton]
The Pentamerone
London: Henry, 1893. 2 vols. 1st edition of this translation. Original cloth, fine condition, fresher than an Italian bachelor. A book that is painfully common but not every set looks like this one, much in the same way that not every man with a mustache is a pedophile. This 1893 Burton edition is considerably more comprehensive than any earlier translation into English, but for all the praise heaped on Sir Richard, I think (where comparable) it's just a minor improvement over Taylor's translation, if it is any improvement at all. fine.
